House Works: Patriotic Popsicles

Before you know it, the Fourth of July will be here. It's always a great time of year, but it can be hot out there.

You might be looking for a way to help your kids cool off. In this House Works, blogger Alison Bickel has a treat that's fit for those little firecrackers in your life!

Layers of fruit puree and vanilla yogurt make these a delicious way to cool off as you are celebrating the Fourth…or any day of summer for that matter. Look for fun popsicle containers, too.

The first idea popsicle idea simply uses lemonade and fruit.

Patriotic Popsicles

1-2 cups vanilla yogurt
Fruit Puree
1 1/2 cups fruit, fresh or frozen and thawed (I used strawberries and raspberries for the red stripe, blueberries for the blue stripe)
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice

Puree all ingredients until smooth in blender or food processor. Pour a layer of fruit puree (red), then add a layer of the yogurt and top with final layer of puree (blue). Freeze until solid, at least 4 hours.
